How to Get Your Very Own Book Category on Amazon

Hilarious, it seems Amazon has become a caricature of the indie book publishing movement that it help started. So Amazon has become a tool for the big 6, haha no surprise there. So much for supporting the little guy during hard times, seems like Vampirzon has drained all the juice the from it’s KDP Select program. Now it’s time to court the fat cats, lol.

Wh…wha….what? Getting your very own book category on Amazon???? Yeah, right, you say. As it stands right now, KDP (Amazon indie publishing platform) is missing even mainstream categories to list some of our books accurately, as I found out during my free promo a few days ago. For example, my book GOLD TRAIN (Accidental Spy Russia Adventure), should be listed in the following categories:

your actions will be a poisonous snake
that lives in your grave.’
But tell me,
Can you do the good work without a teacher?
Can you even know what it is without the presence
of a Master? Notice how the lowest livelihood
requires some instruction.
First comes knowledge,
Then the doing of the job, And much later,
perhaps after you’re dead, something grows
from what you’ve done.
Look for help and guidance
in whatever craft you’re learning. Look for a generous
teacher, one who has absorbed the tradition he’s in.
Look for pearls in oyster shells.
Learn technical skill from a craftsman. Continue reading
